Bike Northwoods Tour Specific Updates for the 2021 Season


  • Route information updated. Click Here for more information.


  • The tour will now start and end at our main lodging site in Manitowish Waters and this will also be the location for long term parking for the week. The main lodging site is about 9 miles from the supported hotel, restaurants, shops, etc. in the town of Boulder Junction itself, and it will be much more convenient for participants to use their own cars to go to town rather than arranging shuttle transportation. The route, stopping towns, and all other tour services will still stay the same.


  • Registration procedures for postponed 2020 participants posted. Click Here for more information.


  • Registration is now open for the 2021 Bike Northwoods Tour! Click Here to register!


  • The number of days you register for the optional Towel Service, Tent Rental, Chair Rental, and Mechanical Support Plan must be the same as the number of days you will attend the event. For example you cannot register to ride for six days but only register for two days of the Mechanical Support Plan.
